My Father and I after the Santa Barbara Marathon 2009

When I began this blog my intent was to chroncile my training for a half marathon, marathon and sprint triathlon. Well, it seems I only chroncled one of those events. In fact I did run a marathon, The Inagural Santa Barbara Marathon on December 6, 2009. And I completed a Sprint Triathlon, The Falmouth, MA Triathlon on July 17, 2011. Obviously I didn’t do the hottest job of chronicling either of those events. I trained for the Marathon while my Mom was dying of Ovarian Cancer and I just didn’t have it in me to think about much else. For the record, that is the last Marathon I will run, I didn’t really find it pleasurable. Frankly running 26.2 miles hurts and is tedious. The Triathlon I loved! I plan on doing several more in the future.
